We were delighted to have Meklit Hadero take a break from her tour through Northern California to perform for us in our own KRCB studio. Born in Ethiopia, and based in San Francisco, Meklit's music is a beautifu genre-bender, crossing the lines of folk, soul, jazz and African music. Her sound has been compared to Nina Simone, Joni Mitchell and many more. Recently named "Google Artist of the Week," Meklit's infectious sounds are spreading quickly, earning coverage from NPR, The Huffington Post, San Francisco Chronicle and more.
Keep an eye on Meklit, she is constantly working on new and interesting, very unique projects. Learn more about her in Amy Contardi's radio and television interview with Meklit for her program, Crossing Borders.
